Foundation Stage Parents Information

Reading and Writing in Reception

The information and other documents (available to download below) outline how we teach reading and writing at St Mary's. There are information sheets on how we teach the children to form the letters, the handwriting jingles we use to teach the correct formation of each letter and a sound mat which can be used to help the children with their independent writing.

If you have any questions, please speak to a member of the Foundation Stage Team.
